This coming Friday, April 13th, S.O.S. Outreach Worker Supervisor Lavon Walker and CHCMC Director Amy Ellenbogen will be panelists at a screening of Player Hating: A Love Story. Player Hating: A Love Story, a film by Maggie Hadleigh-West, follows Half-a-Mill a hip hop artist from the Albany Housing Projects in the S.O.S. catchment area and his Brooklyn crew, The Godfia Criminals. The film follows Half and his crew as they write, perform and launch Half's first album, "Milion". Player Hating delves into the lives of young “thugs”, and takes the viewer into the world of poverty, alienation, gangs, violence and music. According to a NY Post article, "It’s a sobering slice of life that puts actual faces to local violent crime statistics."
